Psychedelic Clinical Integration 101 - Licensed Therapists ONLY (Not CEU)
This day-long workshop is designed to provide clinicians with a comprehensive overview of the current state of clinical therapeutic uses of psychedelics. It will also get them started on the path of this emerging discipline that could greatly expand the scope and healing potential of their clinical practice.
By the end of this day-long interactive workshop, attending clinicians and licensed therapists will be able to:
Discern the important distinction between entheogenic and psychedelic substances and the role each play from a clinical perspective.
Identify the physiological and psychological impact and risk envelop for all major entheogenic and psychedelic substances including: MDMA, Psilocybin (Magic Mushrooms), Mescaline (San Pedro), Ayahuasca, Ibogane, LSD, NN-DMT, 5MeO-DMT (Bufo Alvarius) and Ketamine.
Determine which psychoactive pharmaceuticals (e.g. SSRI’s, anti-anxiety medications, etc.) could be highly dangerous when taken concurrently with certain psychedelics and entheogens.
Formulate appropriate clinical integration approaches depending upon a client’s current psychological profile, substance used and the set and setting in which it was used.
In addition, attendees will explore real-world examples of how well-implemented integration therapy can vastly accelerate clients’ healing from otherwise persistent trauma, depression, addiction and anxiety. Participants are encouraged to bring specific case studies as well as personal experiences and questions for group discussion, analysis, and possible therapeutic approaches.
